  • We have the Bugaboo Donkey with twin bassinets and twin toddler seats. Excellent storage space underneath and easy open/close. I love the easy maneuvering. Turns on a dime! Nov 14, 2018

    It takes a long time to put together after every fold. However the push was very good Nov 06, 2018

  • I love it, but only for walks around the neighborhood. I do not like transporting it anywhere as such I bought a different double stroller for the car. Aug 15, 2018

    It rides very smooth and it looks very nice and sleek. However, it’s a little on the bulkier side and a little more complicated to fold up. Plus accessories are sold separately. Jun 01, 2018

  • Great push, super smooth ride but also so big and bulky. The stroller also has very small seats so bigger children don't last long. May 26, 2018

  • Everywhere we go people awe in our stroller it’s a dream! We love it! We have traveled to Cancun with it and it literally drove through sand we are taking it to Europe in August! Dream stroller! Apr 29, 2018

  • That it can be converted from a single stroller to a double stroller with both kids having equal amount of space. Apr 05, 2018

  • I love how different you can make this stroller-single, double, forward/rear facing. We have the kickstand as well which is great for my toddler. I just wish it included accessories like cupholders. Feb 15, 2018

  • I love this stroller. We use it at a mono and it is amazing how great it is to have everything accessible on the bag next to the baby. I just wish the handle bar was reversible. Jan 28, 2018

  • I have this for my newborn and 2 year old and for what I paid I’m a bit disappointed. It sounds great but it’s very large and it’s a bit tippy. It does fit through doors with both kids side by side. Oct 28, 2017

  • I love this stroller for all the room you get in mono style. However it does not easily fold in and out of cars. I love that I can have baby in bassinet or in the seat and facing in or out. Oct 23, 2017

  • The best stroller ever!! Oct 10, 2017

  • Expensive and cumbersome to fold (we live in a city so I've only done it once) but I don't know what I would do without it. It's made getting out with twins enjoyable. Aug 03, 2017

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE. It's not light, but it's SUPER functional. Transitions easily with age. Good storage in the basket and I love how it goes from single to double. And the wheeled board is GREAT. Jul 19, 2017

    So convertible! Buy this stroller with your first child and use it for years. Single mode has a great side basket for quick shopping trips or carrying all you baby stuff.Breezy canopy=awesome 4 summer Jun 25, 2017

  • Received as a hand me down from a friend and have already tested it out with our niece. Rides smoothly and has all the bells and whistles! Jun 01, 2017

  • I have a toddler and twin babies and this stroller just isn't great for my kids. Maybe if I only had twins it would be great, but the seats are small and for the amount of money it just isn't worth it May 10, 2017

  • I'm torn about this. I love the quality and everything it came with but it is extremely bulky and for a postpartum mama it's not easy to get in and out of the car with other kids Apr 12, 2017

  • easy convertable Mar 22, 2017

  • Excellent stroller! Very sturdy and easy to collapse. We have a Britax stroller too and you can tell how much smoother of a ride this is for the baby when going over bumps. Mar 04, 2017

  • Lots of storage space, easy to push Feb 12, 2017

  • Quality air-filled tires glide over everything. Love the side basket in mono mode. Cons are that the seats are a bit narrow and it's not easy to fold up and transport. Dec 07, 2016

  • Cannot say enough good things about this stroller! Had for 3+ years and its held up beautifully ONLY con: its bulky HOWEVER it now comes in compact fold (comes apart) and fits GREAT in FIAT 500L Dec 02, 2016

  • I would recommend an inline double stroller of stacked double over the Bugaboo. The Donkey is heavy, wide and must be taken apart into multiple pieces to fit into a car. Oct 05, 2016

  • Love this fort two girls. Sep 20, 2016

  • I love the versatility of this stroller. It can easily go from single to double, bassinet to chair, front facing to rear. And it's incredibly sturdy and makes navigating difficult surfaces a breeze. May 06, 2016

  • I love how versatile this stroller is! We have used it for everything!! Apr 02, 2016

  • Wham, a second on the way? This happened to us! I agree with most users that you better have a large trunk or cargo area. It's also difficult to a maneuver through public areas. Jan 30, 2016

    I am in love with my stroller. We have the duo & it was worth every penny. Pushes like a dream & truly is the best convertible on the market. If I had one negative it would be the low weight limits. Jan 23, 2016

    We are tall parents of twins and this was the only stroller we found to be comfortable. When the twins were very small, <3 months, we put them both in the same bassinet & used the mono configuration Apr 06, 2015

  • the best double stroller to push in manhattan if you live here and walk a lot this is the stroller for you but if you need to fold not the best choice! But for any weather in nyc this is the best Dec 04, 2014

    Mixed about this stroller-love the easy steering (one hand!) and it's comfy, but it's heavy and not the easiest to open/close.We use our umbrella double stroller more. Wish I got more use out of this! Sep 30, 2014

  • Best baby purchase we made, hands down! Incredibly versatile. Great for 1-3 children. Great all-terrain buggy. Excellent play in the fixed wheel position allowing for jogging & sprinting. Aug 18, 2014

  • Best splurge ever for our twins! Love the double bassinet and the various seating positions now that they are older. Only wish sun shades had more options to go down farther to keep sun out. But LOVE! Jul 09, 2014

  • We love this for twins or closely spaced siblings. The handling is smooth and makes you look well put together. Resale value is high, worth taking into consideration as part of the investment. Apr 22, 2014

    I have the donkey and am pretty satisfied -- it does take up room but so do most double strollers. It drives well but have had to have 2 wheels replaced in less than 6 months. Mar 14, 2014

  • Very beautiful stroller, rides well. But agree with other moms, can be tough to open and close and is very heavy/bulky. Mar 06, 2014

  • Great customer service. Strong and sturdy stroller used everyday. Side storage is the best part. Jan 09, 2014

  • Amazing stroller! Dec 03, 2013
